To reiterate what John D said: 'I think it's a pedestrian walkway and nobody should cycle in it' That's about the sum of it: Roads are for vehicles, cycle lanes (however inadequate) are for bicycles, and pedestrian walkways are for pedestrians, not just the fit and healthy and people who can see long distance but for those of us who can only walk very slowly, are unsure on our feet and feel intimidated by seeing people coming towards us on a bike, or taking over and coming up the side of us suddenly from behind. If you're fit enough to cycle then you're not vulnerable enough to know what it's like. People cycling along the passage make it uncomfortable for some pedestrians and should dismount when going through the passage not treat it like a cycle lane.
I think there is possibly more than one issue that could be discussed at a time. If we are concerned about making the passage safe for everyone then several issues would have to be dealt with.
I'll be in the Salisbury from 8pm tonight and would love to discuss this with you face to face. I see what you're saying but still you and John D are just asserting your opinion as fact. I don't believe that roads were made for vehicles either so we're sort of on the same page when it comes to, oh wait, you do think roads are for vehicles. Ummm....
